Ray Lamontagne
Old Before Your Time

When I was a younger man lookin' for my pot of gold
Everywhere I turned the doors were closin'
It took every ounce of faith I had to keep on keepin' on
And still I felt like I was only losin'

I refused then like I do now to let anybody tie me down
And I lost a few good friends along the way
I was raised up poor and I wanted more
And maybe I'm a little too proud
In lookin' back I see a kid who was just
Afraid, hungry and old before his time

Through the years I've known my share of broken hearted fools
And those who couldn't choose a path worth taking
There's nothin' in the world so sad as talking to a man
Who never knew his life was his for making

Ain't it about time you realize? It's not worth keepin' score
You win some, you lose some and you let it go
What's the use of stacking on every failure another stone
Till you find you've spent your whole damn life
Building walls, lonely and old before your time

It took so long to see
That truth was all around me

Now the wren has gone to roost and the sky is turnin' gold
And like the sky my soul is also turnin'
Turnin' from the past, at last and all I've left behind
Could it be that I am finally learnin'?

Learnin' I'm deserving of love and the peaceful heart
I won't tear myself apart no more for tryin'
I'm tired of lyin' to myself, tryin' to buy what can't be bought
It's not livin' that you're doin' if it feels like dyin
Cryin, growin' old before your time
Cryin, growin' old before your time


Mirror lyrics:

Cryin, growin' old before your time
Cryin, growin' old before your time
It's not livin' that you're doin' if it feels like dyin
I'm tired of lyin' to myself, tryin' to buy what can't be bought
I won't tear myself apart no more for tryin'
Learnin' I'm deserving of love and the peaceful heart

Could it be that I am finally learnin'?
Turnin' from the past, at last and all I've left behind
And like the sky my soul is also turnin'
Now the wren has gone to roost and the sky is turnin' gold

That truth was all around me
It took so long to see

Building walls, lonely and old before your time
Till you find you've spent your whole damn life
What's the use of stacking on every failure another stone
You win some, you lose some and you let it go
Ain't it about time you realize? It's not worth keepin' score

Who never knew his life was his for making
There's nothin' in the world so sad as talking to a man
And those who couldn't choose a path worth taking
Through the years I've known my share of broken hearted fools

Afraid, hungry and old before his time
In lookin' back I see a kid who was just
And maybe I'm a little too proud
I was raised up poor and I wanted more
And I lost a few good friends along the way
I refused then like I do now to let anybody tie me down

And still I felt like I was only losin'
It took every ounce of faith I had to keep on keepin' on
Everywhere I turned the doors were closin'
When I was a younger man lookin' for my pot of gold
